The audio from a dazzling multi-sensory performance by MSHR, a collaborative project by Birch Cooper and Brenna Murphy. The duo builds and explores systems as a way of manifesting ecstatic sensory zones. They work at the intersection of digital sculpture, analog hardware, and ceremonial performance. This performance revolves around a unique system of light-audio feedback that employs their hand made synthesizers. The duo insert themselves into the system, shifting sculptural sensors to steer the feedback patterns as they explore the hyperscapes of a transhumanist ceremony. MSHR emerged from the five-person art collective Oregon Painting Society in 2011.
This recording was made live in concert as part of the Clocktower's March 2016 Tetraphonics event presented in collaboration with Lea Bertucci at Pioneer Works where four artists explored quadraphonic sound and its mesmeric effects in performance.
Recordings by Alex Thompson in partnership with Harvestworks.
This project is made possible with support from the Department of Cultural Affairs.
